Membership For All

We believe everyone deserves a chance to learn, grow and thrive, so the Lancaster Family YMCA offers financial scholarships to individuals and families who might otherwise not be able to afford membership or program fees.

Through the Lancaster Family YMCA Financial Scholarship Program, families and individuals who want to participate in Y membership and Y programs, but can’t afford to pay the full fee, can receive financial assistance to help offset the cost.

YMCA Financial Scholarships are available to help pay for Y memberships and programs such as summer camps, preschool, after-school childcare, swimming lessons, youth sports and wellness programs.

Anyone with an annual household income of $50,000 or less is eligible to apply for a Y Financial Scholarship towards Y membership or programs.

Financial Scholarship applications are available at the Welcome Desks of our City Center, Lampeter-Strasburg and YMCA at New Holland branches or by downloading the following file.
